A 27-year-old South African geologist has won an international competition for the person who can explain science in the most engaging way.

Tshiamo Legoale was in the international final of the FameLab competition last night in Cheltenham, UK.

Each scientist competing had to deliver a three-minute presentation and was judged for content, clarity and charisma.

She started off her semi-final speech dancing and singing Kanye West’s Lyrics “I ain’t sayin’ she’s a gold digger”.

And she speaks about phytomining – growing plants near gold waste to extract the metal.

Watch her here in the semi-final, 46 minutes in:
